First week of pregnancy signs and sensations
Of course, you think you're pregnant almost immediately from the moment of conception. But it is not so. Before the egg cell passes through the tubes and attaches to the wall of the uterus, you are not yet pregnant. But changes in your body began to occur almost immediately. Immunity will decrease slightly, you will feel tired and it seems as if you are starting to take measures a little differently. Deeper or something. And you become thoughtful.
But all this will be later. First, you will feel, as usual before menstruation, pulling sensations in the lower back, aching pain in the abdomen. But then everything returns to normal, and you will feel better.
Although you dreamed about having a baby for a long time, and even began to make sure that you do not take pills once again, choose something useful for lunch instead of the usual fast food. You spent so much time together that he or she appeared.
What you need to know in the first weeks of pregnancy
Now it is especially important to double monitor your health and think over a diet rich in folic acid. It is important. You read that at this time the placenta is being formed - a room for the future baby. And his neural tube. Now you will feel like two communicating vessels the slightest movement of each other, the slightest change in the emotional state. It looks like magic. In the meantime, you need to prepare yourself to make the baby comfortable. Something like repairing your own body.
Changes in the body of a woman in the first week
With the moment when pregnancy finally comes, we figured it out. The ovum was fertilized and with dignity went to be fixed to the wall of the uterus. All this happens under the strict control of the pituitary gland and another section of the brain - the hypothalamus. Proper hormonal metabolism is largely dependent on their work.
Now think about proper nutrition.
How to eat a woman in the first weeks of pregnancy
Now you need to eat like in a sanatorium: a lot of vegetables, vitamins, all sorts of minerals and trace elements. Salads, juices, fruits. Listen carefully to yourself: during pregnancy you may want to do something. Believe me, the body itself knows what you need and asks for it. Fat tasty fish - please, carbohydrates - well, meat - but, if possible, lean. Any whim ...
Of course, you have already visited the antenatal clinic. Do not neglect the advice of your gynecologist. He will tell you which vitamins you need most at what time. The need of pregnant women for vitamins increases several times, so watch this. You know that many women face the problem of low hemoglobin. And in order for iron to digest well, you will need folic acid. In fact, it is recommended to take both spouses for several months before conception. But if you have not done so, start taking folic acid now. It certainly will not be superfluous.
Signs of pregnancy
Family planning (eng. family planning) - one of the main ways to solve the global demographic problem of stabilizing the population of the earth. The most commonly used methods allow the couple to have sexual intercourse on a regular basis, obtaining satisfaction, while reliably reducing the likelihood of an unwanted pregnancy in a woman, at least until the couple decides that it should occur. In this regard, family planning includes methods that either prevent fertilization, or act after fertilization, interfering with embryo implantation.
Currently, there is an effective opportunity for pregnancy planning. One of the most effective natural family planning methods is the symptothermal method, but it is inferior to hormonal contraception in effectiveness and does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases like a condom.
When planning a pregnancy, it is important to determine the day of ovulation. After all, the thing is that the egg cell (unfertilized) dies a day after ovulation, therefore the fertile period in the menstrual cycle occurs 2-3 days before ovulation (spermatozoa are active up to 3 days) and ends one to two days after the onset of ovulation. And the days most favorable for conception are the day before ovulation and the day of ovulation.
So, a surge in the level of luteinizing hormone means the beginning of the most successful time for conception.
Signs of pregnancy 33rd week of pregnancy: fetal development, weight, movement
Now the child is forced to take the "germ shape." His head is slightly tilted to the breast, the arms and legs are pressed to the body. Now he has become more, and the place to freely stretch out in his "house" is no longer enough.
Now he takes the position of the head to the entrance to the pelvis, buttocks up. This is a normal situation for a child at this time. But the breech presentation, when the head of the baby is felt in the upper part of her mother's stomach with all the complexity of the situation, is not a tragedy. Modern medicine allows you to safely deal with this problem.
In some cases, the fetus is located transversely. And in this case, the only way to save the life of the mother and child is a cesarean section.
Although ideally the child should not be born yet, childbirth at this time is permissible. And the baby has every chance to survive. However, as in other similar cases, premature babies require special care, perhaps, and the content in the box until it gets stronger.
In babies born at week 33, the cartilage is already denser, the nail plate is almost developed. And even the heart is able to cope with the blood flow. Alveoli in the lungs are already formed, and in principle the amount of surfactant - a substance that does not allow alveoli to stick together during the first breath - also accumulated in sufficient quantities. The body length of the baby is almost 44 cm. The volumes of the breast and tummy are 85 and 87.4 mm, the diameter of the head is 82 mm. It would seem nice.
Nevertheless, it is believed that the birth of a child at the 33rd week is fraught with complications.
33rd week of pregnancy: feelings of a woman
The list of all kinds of sensations - alarming, pleasant and unpleasant - is very wide. First, you are increasingly thinking about the upcoming birth. Are you tired of pregnancy and at the same time ready to postpone the final chord. Just because waiting and uncertainty scare you.
Secondly, you continue to worry about problems with the intestines - constipation, often heartburn, nagging pains in the spine and in the abdominal region are tiring and alarming. At night, though less often, there are convulsions or numb limbs. To cope with this problem, you are actively taking calcium.
Sometimes in places of stretch marks on the abdomen there is itching. But you have adapted to facilitate his massage with a hard towel, a washcloth made of luffa. Use creams. Before you go out or to the store feel free to wear a bandage. Although the doctor advises to wear it at home.
Because of the big tummy, which seems to be already reaching the ribs, there is a feeling of lack of oxygen - shortness of breath. But you have adapted to this state and with the help of simple exercises - straighten your chest, then lift your shoulders up - you get the missing oxygen into the lungs.
The bottom of the uterus drops a little only after a month, at best, after three weeks. We'll have to suffer.
Even if you have not noticed strong edema before, they can now appear. After going to the store, you notice the traces of Kant from your boats, traces of gum from the T-shirt on the body. This does not mean that you need to stop drinking water. This in no case can not be done. But a little salt reduction can be helpful.
Find the time to perform unpretentious complex for pregnant women. It could be yoga, shiatsu or something else. The main thing - correctly chosen exercises will help you prepare for childbirth. Moreover, the birth of a child is connected not only with psychological stress, but also with physical stress. Your muscles and ligaments will enjoy the feeling that light stretching exercises give.
33rd week of pregnancy: discharge from the genital tract
Try to look after yourself with special care and avoid any infections. For you and your baby, they would be out of place now. However, if you notice a purulent or abundant discharge, it is better to immediately consult with your doctor and get an emergency checkup. The birth canal should be clean. And if you get an infection shortly before giving birth, the time to recover from them may simply not be enough. Any germs can harm a baby even in the womb.
Bleeding, loss of amniotic fluid, pain in the abdomen - all these symptoms indicate the threat of premature birth or health problems of the child. Therefore, call an ambulance. Do not worry if such anxiety turns out to be false. Better to be safe.
33rd week of pregnancy: eating pregnant
Do not you know what discomfort brings heartburn. And now the slightest deviation from the regime - can cause heartburn. Naturally, it is most often caused by fried, smoked or overly spicy dishes. Even if you allowed yourself only something from the forbidden list, heartburn can remind you of yourself. To get rid of heartburn, they say you need to drink milk or drink calcium (even the simplest calcium gluconate will do). As an option - drink a little heated alkaline mineral water.
Naturally, special drugs are sold in the pharmacy. But still, when choosing a medicine for heartburn, you should consult with your doctor. Among the general recommendations - there are more often and small portions, try not to eat at night, at dinner choose sparing foods - fresh or steamed. And after lunch or dinner it is better to walk a little.
Now consider the kid wants endlessly. If the doctor once again checks the condition of organs and systems, then it is more interesting for you to examine your infant. They say that by this time the child already has dreams. Researches which were conducted by scientists measured movements of pupils during a dream. You are considering his face, trying to guess which of you he will look like. The question of who to expect - a boy or a girl - has long been resolved. The doctor answered this question unequivocally two weeks ago.
The placenta still performs the functions assigned to it: it protects the baby from the aggressive environment and carries nutrients along with the blood.
